The tweet revealed that the personality's channel had been taken down from the site.

Going by the current information available through industry experts, the situation is very critical, and Twitch not officially contacting Doc might mean that they are now accessing all the available "proofs" about the matter and might contact Dr Disrespect soon with a legal notice. "These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community", the Twitch spokesperson said in a statement.

Another streamer, ShannonZKiller, claimed to also know the reason for the ban, stating Dr Disrespect was done "not just on Twitch" in a since-deleted tweet, according to Forbes.

Rod Breslau, a notable esports journalist, reported that the ban was meant to be permanent and has also been in touch with sources claiming to know why the ban was passed down. With a reason yet to be confirmed, we take a look at what we do know at this time.

The ambiguous statement has left fans wondering why exactly Dr. Disrespect was banned from Twitch.

But given that he's pretty significantly ignoring the Covid-19 disaster in the United States , he may permit this a person slide. Openings in Europe can have the same painful effect in states such as Florida, Texas and Arizona.

The Doc is no stranger to controversy.

This isn't the first time that Guy Beahm has been in the public spotlight for iffy conditions; he infamously took a break from streaming after it came to light that he was unfaithful to his wife, sleeping with others outside of his marriage; people that were allegedly fans of his. However, something seems different now, if only because of the mystery surrounding the ban.

There's unusual doings a-transpirin' in the gaming world, with streaming megalith Twitch abruptly booting one of its most popular personalities off the platform, with no apparent reason being made public. As Kain says in an edit to his Forbes article, "It's hard not to have your mind drift to very bad things when we just don't know, well, anything and everyone who does know something won't comment publicly about it because it's so 'sensitive'". Sources alleged that the star has been permanently banned from the streaming service.

And that's something to keep at the forefront of your mind as all of this unfolds.

It's unclear why GameFuel and Razer have both made a decision to once again promote their campaigns with Dr Disrespect. "I want to assure you all that we are looking into all the incidents and will be taking action and cooperating with law enforcement".
